About Us

The impressive reputation of Robert and Josyane Young as dealers in antiques specialising in vernacular furniture and folk art led their customers to start asking this husband-and-wife team to decorate their houses. Since establishing Rivière Interiors in 1983, they have completed works as varied as a Charles II town house and a newbuild in the Netherlands, combining contemporary materials with historical details.
